Found August 12, 2012 on 60 Max Power O:

In the loss to Cincinnati the Jets also lost safety Eric Smith for the rest of the preseason with a sprained MCL in his left knee.

The injury occurred in the second quarter on a punt, as Smith is one of the Jets best special team’s players.

Smith wasn’t figured to be a starter before the injury but was going to be playing on defense in different formations. Smith was also the main backup for starting safety LaRon Landry who is coming of an Achilles tendon injury, and has been on a limit on how much he can play still.

The Jets may need to make a move if they think Smith might miss some regular season games, and may look to bring back Brodney Pool who was cut by the Cowboys last week, and would be familiar with the defense due to playing on the Jets last two seasons.
